Research Interests

  • My research interest is geared towards exploring the link between the development of alternative energy, its usage and the effect on the standard of living and the climate, as well as the promotion of gender equality and human rights. I fervently believe that the development of sustainable alternative energy sources, gender equality, human rights, peace and conflict resolution begins with the establishment of good policies which will lead to a healthier environment and a longer life expectancy
